Benefits delays are leaving thousands of cancer patients forced to wait months to find out if they will receive help, a charity has found.
A survey from Macmillan Cancer Support found 4,500 cancer patients had been made to wait six months or more for a decision on whether they will get the new Personal Independence Payment (PIP).
The charity said the poll had shown the "shattering" impact of the problems with the introduction of PIP, which has replaced Disability Living Allowance.
